POMEGRANATE

Green tree
Bearing red light
You hang red light
For festivals
Inside that light
You will find
The secret
Search that secret
You will find
Treasure of skin-covered ruby
Formed granular
Separate each bundle
With yellow flask
Shines, sparkles
Like garnet;
Its crystal tinsel-like diamond
Feeds blood to the heart,
And gives
Glory to the eyes
Bright eyes
Look how nature is beauty

  2. Dear Freshta:

    I am of Italian decent and we always had Pomegranates at our table during our Holiday season, so I could relate to everything you wrote…the yellow flask, ruby, garnate. As I read your poem my mouth started to water. The power of imagery and common experience does that so beautifully. I will think of you when I peel the Pomegranate at my table.
